The timer switching off has nothing to do with it's location, it has to be in the wiring, One of those wires is in the wrong place. It is sending the juice back to the ground or neutral. Inside your timer, you have a place for 2 or 4 wires? One in, one out, the switch completes the circuit, turns on, turns off, the white wire is in there to run the clock and complete continuity to the pump? which is 220 volts? If yes, then you are switching 4 wires, 2 in, and 2 out, both colored, and the ground if there is one is screwed to a green screw inside the timer. The 2 wires in(4) 2 colored, 1 white, 1 bare or green, should be on the "line" screws, the 2 wires out, (4) should be on the "load" screws. Are the in wires on a GFI breaker? Is the pump grounded? Are those screws in the right place? Does the pump run? Now that you are totally confused. Need to know some of this stuff.

Same answer applies as one sent earlier.
Take some time and read answer, or re-post question and pay for interactive answer with fixya expert who can walk you through the steps for a price.

1) You have P1353 timer.
This is a complicated timer for beginner because timer can be set up many different ways for multiple operations.

Open following link for manual: The manual is a large file and may be impossible to download on dial-up.
Smaller manual is available but some pages are turned sideways which is not so handy.

P1353 instructions start page 28 of larger manual.
Manual is longer than space allowed for free answer, so we can work in stages.
At any time, you add a comment and I will respond -and/or send a photo of your wiring, etc

1) You want Mode 2 so low and high speeds are not turned ON at same time.
2) Wiring requirement: High speed is connected to terminal 3, low speed connected to terminal 2 as shown in fig 4-4 > this is where you can send a photo or add a comment and clarify how your timer is wired.

3) Page 30 goes through steps for setting the mode. Remember you want Mode 2.
4) Page 31 shows how to set current time of day.

5) Page 31-2 shows steps for programming each circuit.
Assuming that your wiring matches fig 4-4 mentioned above:
High speed is circuit 1
Low speed is circuit 2

Once you digest this information, it will narrow down the questions and I can answer those one at a time with more detail if needed.
Or you can re-post a question and I will probably catch it.

Also take advantage of fixya expert assistance live.
For a price, expert works with you while you work on timer or any do-it-yourself project.
Fixya is always less expensive than a service call.

Timer wiring

Possible that the timer wiring to the functions needs to be reconfirmed. Each of the cycles must be relative to the timer for the full functioning of the machine. Please recheck on your earlier work, if you made a circuit diagram , recheck the sequence.

The pump is on a timer and last night during a storm the pump stopped working?

Try connecting the pump to the mains and bypassing the timer.
If the pump works then the timer is faulty and needs to be replaced.
If the pump does not work then the pump motor is faulty,

Replaced timer in chloromatic esc 48 and does not advance

Get rid of the ESC 48 . They seem to be very unreliable unit and that's a common fault with timers. Buy a better brand Cheers

Model 4001-ov trips the circuit breaker.

Assuming you have Paragon 4001 40 amp 120Volt timer
By-pass the timer so only pool pump is connected to breaker.
To do this, move wire from terminal 2 and connect to terminal 1.
If breaker no longer trips, then replace timer with Intermatic T101
Crossover wiring: Paragon terminal 1 goes to Intermatic terminal 1.
Paragon terminal 2 to Intermatic terminal 2.
Paragon terminal 3 to Intermatic terminal A
If breaker keeps tripping after bypassing timer, then tighten wires on circuit breaker and test again.
If breaker keeps tripping, then move wires to another same-size breaker.
Breakers trip when they sense overheating.
If motor is causing problem, you might need electrician to track down source of overheating.

Installing a outdoor timer t104m this is for the pool cleaner,need wireing to pool pump timer.

Open following link for wiring diagrams and manual.

240Volt T104 can be wired many different ways.
What is the significance of 'next to the pool pump timer?'
Are you getting power off the 240V pool pump timer to operate the new T104? This is perfectly fine. The pool pump wires would bring power from the breaker box.
Is the new T104 going to control 120Volt lights? The timer can do that, it just has to be wired correctly.
In any case, the T104 has 240Volt (or 277V) clock motor, and clock will not operate with 120V

If you add specific details, I can help with exact wiring diagram for your project.

Maytag Atlantis MDE7400AYW timer has been replaced but the dryer won't stop drying on it's own. What is the reason? I have the same problem... the timer on mine doesn't seem to work. Any ideas?

The wire connections to the timer may have not been made correctly when it was replaced bypassing the OFF contact in the control circuit.  There should be a wiring diagram inside the front or back panel that you can check.
